I was working on what I think was a technically difficult painting which I will do once in a while because I think it is a good idea. It isn't really in my nature so after a certain amount of time I put it aside and grab a small canvas to put some paint on in a free flowing manner. Today the result is this canvas which I call fantasy.

I am revisiting some old haunts trying to get "my groove back" as the saying goes. I have always been fascinated with clouds and want to do a number of different cloud paintings.
Today the clouds are so low that when I look out the window I can not tell the difference between the water, the island and the sky. It's all just pale white. How do you paint that. That's always the question.

I am starting some of these paintings with a Notan done with black gesso. I choose a few colors to work with and then let the painting speak to me. It is very intuitive and often doesn't work. When I start to see an image that in my mind resurrects a memory I tend to follow that direction.
This painting started with brushwork and then I switched to the palette knife. I also used a comb for some different line effects.

So, here we go. Slowly finding stuff. Only some of my paints but enough for now.
I think the title is from my internal wish to know where all my supplies are and to have them put away so I know where I am at. It is frustrating but so far I have worked around it. I may be going out to buy a sketch book and a few other things if they don't show up soon.
